I love using auto-linking, but I'm now wondering if it creates accessibility issues for screen readers. There are some older posts that suggest that was once the case, but is it still?
The accessibility of auto-linking was investigated as part of OU accessibility review in 2006, but I confess that I’m not up to date on current position.
You might be interested in the work that Jessica Gramp is doing on accessibility in Moodle (Jessica is an active member of these forums and treasurer of the Moodle User Association).
Thanks, Jon. Maybe Jessica will chime in and know the current state of things.
